expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with legendary limited affection from one another. >> i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their warmth and hospitality. it was wonderful to see them. they are -- i did inform the prime minister that they are very good looking young men who clearly got their looks from their mother. >> well, i can say the same of your daughters. >> this is true. >> even before the president's arrival the consensus among israelis, palestinians, and even white house officials was that this visit will not do anything concrete to move the peace process forward, so we can't help but ask, what's the point? let's try to get some perspective from cnn's jessica yellin who is live in jerusalem. jessica, were there any surprises from the president at the press conference today? >> reporter: well, i think,
, and help you find the aarp medicare supplement plan that's right for you. >>> president obama leaves tonight for israel with visits to the west bank and jordan. he has had a relatively poor relationship with israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu. his stock may be rising in israel right now even as it falls with some of the palestinians. cnn's john king is in jerusalem. >> reporter: call to prayer in the palestinian village of masra. muslim worshipers under the watchful gaze of israeli forces because masra is side by side with a jewish settlement in the west bank. skirmishes like this are routine but on this day a new twist. anti-obama chants in both arabic and english prove the thrill is gone in arab communities that four years ago saw hope in the new american president. >> obama not welcome in palestinians. >> this coffee shop is full of young palestinian professionals. >> there are settlements, poor people, there is nothing. and all of us are sure that obama disappointed us. >> reporter: do you hear the united states as an honest broker? >> definitely not. i think they want to
benjamin netanyahu. along with hundreds of guests and vips. before he left the airport, president obama was shown an area displaying israeli air defenses including the so-called iron dome. then the motorcade saided to jerusalem where the pred will have a little down time before meetings today. our own chuck todd is in jerusalem. he joins me now. chuck, looks like to be a rather pleasant day at least weather-wise. what is going on in the holy land? >> well, mr. russert, it is unbelievable weather here greeting the president. pretty much a perfect spring day, if you will here in the holy land. what was interesting is the first thing the president said as he got off and there were microphones everywhere, i don't think he knew he was on, he said it's good to be away from congress. also that chitchat as making his way through shaking hands with various dignitaries, he and netanyahu were heard joking about difficulties in the budget process that both leaders are having in each of their countries. but, look, this event, you set it up well. this trip is heavy on symbolism, going to be somewhat
security. >> warner: netanyahu was asked if he agreed wth mr obama's comment to israeli television last week that iran was over a year from having a nuclear weapon. >> if iran decides to go for a nuclear weapon, that is, to actually manufacture the weapon, then it probably, then it will take them about a year. i think that's correct. iran right now is enriching uranium. it will-- it's pursuing it. it hasn't yet reached the red line that i had described in my speech at the u.n. in any case, iran gets to an immunity zone when they get through the enrichment process, in our view... in our vw. and whatever time is left, there's not a lot of time. >> warner: the president continues his trip tomorrow to the west bank to speak with palestinian leaders, then back to deliver a speech in jerusalem. >> ifill: i spoke with margaret a short while ago. margaret, it's good to see you. this is the president's first foreign visit of his second term. why israel, and why now? >> warner: that's a good question, gwen, because as i think we know from theampaign, prident obama nver d vit raeas esident and got
that. is real concern that is the issue prime minister netanyahu and president obama have to agree. uma: on issue of syria, chemical weapons, what are the thoughts at this moment? is there viable evidence to say those weapons have actually been used? >> certainly those are the claims and i think there will be a u.n. investigation into this but that clearly has been a red line president obama has drawn and needs to draw and it will be very critical that if there are chemical weapons being used by the assad regime president obama responds accordingly. that is another red line he is drawing. that is red line irisraelies will be watching and iranians. is this president serious about committing to red lines and honoring the red lines. uma: quickly with obama speaking to young people in israel, that was very interesting strategy on his part because he knows he often does well in those kind of settings, at that type of theater backdrop. >> i think that's right. president obama shown in the u.s. context he is he is brilliant at grassroots activism and getting support of the grassroots. he tried
we need to pay attention to your local forecasts. >> gregg: janice dean. >> jamie: president obama is headed back home after a middle east tour and he met with prime minister netanyahu, the two reaffirming the extraordinary bonds as they called it between the nations and he also addressed the threat from iran. >> the united states will continue to consult closely with israel on next steps and i will repeat, all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> jamie: and topped the agenda when the president traveled to the west bank and met with palestinian authority mahmoud abbas. >> i absolutely believe that it is still possible, but i think it is very difficult. but if we can get direct negotiations started again, i believe that the shape of a potential deal is there. >> jamie: well, today, the president's trip wraps up in jordan, a key mideast ally king abdullah and what is going on in syria. what's going done? and former ambassador to the united nations, john bolton. >> good to be with you. >> jamie: are we at sta
at the campus chapel. one student is still in the hospital. >>> president obama is facing resistance from israel's incoming government as he prepares to embark on his first official visit to israel. his visit happens in two days. israel's new housing minister says prime minister benjamin netanyahu's cabinet plans to keep expanding jewish settlements. president obama had long urged israel to halt building on the disputed land. >>> a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows many more americans continue to side with israel rather than the palestinian authority. but most also prefer to leave peace negotiations between the two sides rather than involve the united states. 55% sympathize more with israel. just 9% sympathize with the palestinian authority. while 18% have no opinion. >>> big trip for president obama. there is a perception by some that -- that the president has devoted more of his energies and his, his vision to arab issues rather than israeli issues. a perception by some, fair or not. so there is a sense that he is going over there to sort of maybe give the impression that he is mending
assassinated in 1995. president obama also visited the holocaust memorial joining president perez and prime minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to b
on as >> on day two of his middle east tour, president obama took on the deadlock in the israeli-palestinian peace process. he spent time with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and palestinian president mahmoud abbas. president obama is calling for direct talks between the two parties and sharing a vision for a peaceful future. two rockets launched from gaza hit southern israel thursday. the same day as president obama's visit to the west bank to talk about the stalled israeli-palestinian peace process. >> we cannot give up on the search for peace, no matter how hard it is. >> reporter: following earlier meetings with israeli leaders, he met with the president of the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas. to discuss key sticking points in the peace process..including jewish settlements in the west bank. president obama stressed the need to achieve sovereignty for palestinians and security for israel. >> i hereby assert again that we are ready to implement all our commitments and obligations in order to provide for the requirements of launching the peace process and achieving the two-state s
to geopolitical relationships here's what president obama had to say last week on his radio tv with his relationship with bebe netanyahu. >> we've got a terrific relationship. he's very blunt with me on issues, and i'm very blunt with him about issues and we get stuff done. >> blunt? the trip is going to highlight talks with netanyahu. but the speech in jerusalem, more to be done with visiting with mahmoud abbas as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's wh
ryan grim. >> today president obama began his first state visit to israel. after their meeting, the two leaders will hold a joint news conference this afternoon. the day began with president obama's early morning arrival where he was met by netanyahu and simon perez. >> thank you for what you are, thank you for what you do. thank you for the hopes you carry with you. >> i come here today with a simple message for you and the-mile-an-hour people. thank you. thank you for strengthening the unbreakable alliance between our two nations during your presidency. >> despite the positive juju, president obama still has considerable work ahead of had imto shore up israeli support. ben pith writes, the trip's symbolism is clearly focused on rye 'sure the israeli public that the president and the united states, calling into question, rather than push for specific policies, it would seem this visit is about winning israeli hearts and minds. ahead of the president's trip. politico ran the headline -- president obama in israel, symbolism over substance. and so essentially it seems this is exactly the
relationship between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu has certainly thawed if there were any problems? >> yes i have gotten that impression. >> bill: they are spending a lot of time together and very supportive of each other. what are the chances for resumption of peace talks between both sides? >> well, i'm an optimist. i think that's something that we need to move forward on and i do believe with the president now, i think having -- what i believe is the confidence of the israelis that he is going to be in a much better position to try to encourage them to get back to the table, and with the palestinians and try to get there without preconditions and sit and try to get it done. >> bill: and it looks like there's some willingness on both sides, so let's hope that happens. meanwhile yesterday the ryan budget comes up in front of the house, and of course no surprise that republicans were able to round up enough votes to pass it. i was surprised, however, congress woman that it only got what 220 votes -- two more than it needed to pass the
back to the some of the successes of obama's trip, one of the big unheralded success is netanyahu's apology to turkey. and turkey's prime minister. because that creates an interesting new alliance. moving forward diplomatically before the incident with the flotilla two years ago. it creates a new alliance, egypt, turkey, qatar, it could be as these anti-assad countries sort of alie under one banner -- >> she's right on that. the israelis, the turks, they're all very concerned about this. but i also think we don't know who the opposition is. yes, there are bad actors -- >> we can shape that. >> right. we have no equity, no investment, no shaping, no nothing, we don't really know them. and the fact that all of these bad guys are there, is because of the vacuum that has been created -- exactly. >> you make an excellent point. netanyahu doesn't go around apologizing. >> i'm surprised he did. >> he's not a big -- he realized that israel and turkey have a common, dire problem, the threat of syrian chemical weapons. he had to swallow his pride and say, i'm going to work with this guy on
nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a breath, you're too late. not much can be done now given the levels of distrust. some will say the most important thing is to start to improve the personal relationship. you know, as well as i do, perhaps even better, this president and this prime minister do not have a good personal relationship, but given the issues, iran, syria, and the president's hope that down the road a few months a reviving peace conversations, they have to get more trust, if not peace. >> john, you spent time in gaza. what was that like crossing in, crossing back, what did you see? >> reporter: it was fascinating, wolf. my first time, a very e elaborate security apparatus, even more so when you come back from gaza into israel, they take a close look, check your papers and the like. to go to gaza is to see the two different palestinian territo
. host: did netanyahu we see if his strike authorization while giving president obama and his legacy? we have a window of opportunity for the fomc to work. opportunitydent -- for diplomacy to work. if israel goes into war against iran, you can bet that the united states will not sit idly by. it will be involved. the united states is not interested in the world is not interested. the last thing we need is another war in the middle east. an israeli strike will drive the united states into a war that no one can determine the future of. two monthse month or or years to come. suppose you want to go after the nuclear program and the facilities in iran. these are spread over a huge area. size ofthree times the iraq. it is not just one area like in the 1980's. that will take a huge effort to destroy it. i believe the united states was able to convince the israeli prime minister and the israeli government and even the hawks that perhaps we should hold back and allow the sanctions to work. they are working. there are all kinds of indications that iraq -- iran is getting the message. host: frank is
thought netanyahu would look smaller perhaps because he is sort of older than obama and another generation of leaders. but i felt like it kind of worked the other way around that some of obama's charisma and his sort of bigger rubbed off on netanyahu and made him seem like a better figure after he had gotten pretty beaten up in the last round of e elections. >> that was the charm offensive. any policy accomplishments? >> one i can point to and it doesn't rank terribly significant from a u.s. point of view but he did oversee -- "he," did see between israel and turkey something that the u.s. had been working on for a couple of years. >> two important allies? >> first, he really just it's hard to overstate how critical they are to the u.s. right at the moment with what we have going on? syria and why of the about anything else that happens in the arab world, we usually lean on turkey to act as proxy for us. few arab countries even have diplomatic countries with israel that they get along. it may not be obvious to the american public but to diplomats, th
in 2016. >> president obama leaves tonight on a new mideast mission traveling to israel for high-level meetings with prime minister netanyahu and comes at a critical time. he will try to appeal to their elected officials to allow time for sanctions against iran to work before attempting military action. the president will also visit the west bank and jordan. >>> also in the middle east an american citizen emerging as the alternative to president bashar al assad in syria. he is from texas and elected early this morning as the leader of the opposition and could be the first prime minister if the government of al assad is ever toppled. >>> to a close call for thousands of college students walking around campus with a heavily armed gunman in their midst but police swooped down on the university of central florida before their fellow student could carry out his plot. here's pierre thomas with the latest. >> reporter: hundreds at the university of central florida evacuated as word broke of a gunman on campus. >> the cops had guns and were telling everyone to run. >> we noticed somethin
state since taking office. >> after meeting with president shimon perez, mr. obama is sitting down this hour with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. among the tough issues they're discussing, the war in syria and iran's nuclear program. we'll go live to israel straight ahead. >>> and a tiny european nation scrambling to head-off a major financial crisis. banks and markets remain closed in cyprus today as top officials hold an emergency meeting. >> on tuesday lawmakers there rejected a bailout plan because it would apply tax on people's bank deposits. the finance minister is in moscow to ask russia for help. >> that's because almost one-third of the money in cyprus banks is, guess what, from russia. all right. in paris french police have been raiding the home of the imf chief christine lagarde. >> so far police are not saying why, but her lawyers say it has to do with a french court's investigation of lagarde's role in intervening in a long running dispute between a businessman and a french bank. >> remember lagarde succeeded dominique strauss kahn. >> authorities say he was shot at
to yourself quietly. today began with president obama visiting the dead sea scrolls with prime minister benjamin netanyahu and visited a tex sch show where israeli engineers showed them a snake-like contraption that shgoes in smal spaces and shows them what's going on in those small spaces. and he visited the and met with palestinian president abbas. that was all by lunchtime and then spoke at a convention center before an audience of more than 2,000 israelis. most of the audience was made up of college students but government officials and civil leaders in the audience. shortly after beginning his remarks, the president as i mentioned was heckled. he responded by saying the heckler made him feel right at home. one advantage of having, you lie, screamed at you during a speech during congress is heckling probably never rattles you again. the crowd give him standing ovation in response to the heckler and cheered with approval at this point in the speech. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideologically of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth bene
. in the meantime, president obama is expected to arrive in israel later today to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a broad range of security issues. it's the first time he's visited the country as president and only the second time he's been to the middle east since taking office. we are joined now from jerusalem. what's the mood there ahead of this visit? >> hi there, kelly. both israelis and palestinians aren't expecting much from president obama's visit. the obama administration made it clear that it's a listening tour and he'll speak to israeli and palestinian officials to get the lay of the land of where they see the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, speak to israeli officials about possibly starting peace talks -- starting peace talks again to find resolution when it comes to israeli/palestinian issue. it will be interesting to see what president obama says to
striking in this press conference was the fact that prime minister netanyahu actually agreed with the time frame that president obama had mentioned over the past week. and that's a year or so. the israelis had been suggesting earlier that the time frame may be moving at a faster pace. and that indicates that there is at least a year for stronger diplomatic efforts or international movement to press the iranians to compromise, to prove that they, as they claim, that they're not developing a weapon or, you know, to find terms that will allow the international community to step back and the israelis not to be concerned about annes so essential threat. >> president netanyahu thanked to president for unequivocally affirming israel's sovereign right to defend itself against any threat. does this not portend to some kind of military action given that mr. netanyahu said at the united nations, as you know, that he expected iran to have the capacity for a nuclear weapon by perhaps summer this year at the press conference, he said within a year, does this not suggest that there's likely to be some ki

is to translate his rhetoric into political action. let me be blunt, too. president barack obama gave up on brokering a peace settlement between the palestinians and the israelis almost after the first year. prime minister benjamin netanyahu is more interested in on the ground than a two-state solution. we shall wait and see if president barack obama, this great american, would invest serious political capital in brokering a peace settlement between two camps. >> and how interested are the palestinians and abbas in a two-state solution? i was reading this week. he was writing that this term work the-state solution, is a real fallacy. for many reasons, one of which is because palestinian authority does not actually want a two-state solution. abbas has written before that he would never recognize israel's authority. and as you know, i'm sure, two-state solutions have been brokered and offered, 1937, '47, 2000, 2008, all denied. on the part of the palestinian authority. so is obama's quest for a two-state solution naive? >> the palestinians have repeatedly stressed that they believe in a tw
, going into this trip, prime minister netanyahu and president obama had a bit of a strained relationship, and i think what this did was the president made it very clear that israel is open and able to defend itself however it sees fit, and so when it comes to iran and it comes to the nuclear program there, the president left the door open when it comes to what israel may do and what the u.s. may do when it comes to maybe targeted military interventions when it comes to the nuclear program there. >> let's look at what happened, this voteorama. david, the senate was charging through about 70 amendments overnight. it finally passed its first budget in four years. it came about like 5:00 in the morning. how significant is that and in terms of timing without taking us to the very last minute? >> well, alex, as you know, this congress they tend to do that, but i think it's important not just symbolically that the senate passed a budget for the first time in four years but also what it's doing is staking out the democratic position for the upcoming battle over the next round of negotiations on
direction. >> just this past weekend, chuck todd with a series of questions to president obama, as the president continued his trip through the middle east and was joined by the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> thank you, mr. president. mr. president, i want to follow up a little on the peace process. you began your first term, big fanfare, cairo speech to talk to the muslim world, the decision to have a middle east envoy early. you weren't going to let this slip to your second term, the second term with the mideast peace process. what went wrong? why are we further away from a two-state solution. i know you said you want to talk more about this tomorrow, but what do you believe went wrong? did you push israel too hard? what do you wish you would have done differently? and mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague here, with a follow-up, do you accept the president's understanding that iran is a year away when it comes to nuclear weapons. another question i have for you -- >> you are like the israeli press. you say you have one question, and then -- the l
there, but when barack obama arrived in israel for the first time as president this week, he had what he called his homework .n hand on the list, healing a political rift with prime minister benjamin netanyahu, winning over a skeptical and gently c, restarting the moribund middle east peace talks in part by appealing to israelis to see it from the palestinian point of iew. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. just as israelis built a state in their homeland, palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land. gwen: but make no mistake, this was an emphatically pro-israel trip, especially when the president talked tough to two of the region's problematical leaders, presidents mahmoud ahmadinejad of iran and bashar .l-assad of syria >> i'm confident that assad will go. it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people? gwen: and today he did some hand-holding with the leaders of jordan and
exactly with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister here, this is what you need to demand as a population. it was meant as a way to counter feelings in israel that perhaps president obama is anti-israeli. analysts say he accomplished that feat of being able to sway public opinion here by this massive charm offensive which was very well choreographed. today a little bit more of the ceremonial types of things. laying a wreath at mount hertzel ceremony where famous leaders are buried. he visited the holocaust memorial and then he has lunch with prime minister netanyahu. this is their third or fourth one on one meeting of this trip as they try to get down to the nitty-gritty issues. obviously the israelis want to talk most about iran, iran, iran and president obama wants to talk a little bit about the palestinians. that is where he's headed next, over to bethlehem to try to talk to them. however, the charm offensive he had over there, the warm and fuzzy feelings he's getting in israel hasn't worked so far with the palestinians. >>brian: was there any backlash of the president talking beyond t
both he and former french president sarkozy, and the reporters once heard trashing of netanyahu. sarkozy, i can't stand him,'s a liar, obama, you are sick of him, but i have to work with him every day. i don't know what he means by every day, i don't remember how many times he refused to meet with his counterpart. the white house turned down the request to meet with obama, and aides were claiming that a scheduling conflict with the scheduling. and the president shared a good old laugh with david letterman during the visit. and when the president first set foot in the oval office, remember, he began apologizing to the world for america, to israel's detriment. >> america, like every other nation has made mistakes and has its flaws. in america, there's a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where americans showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive. >> 9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. the fear and anger that it provoked

. >> good morning, bill. bill: president obama is in israel later this week with benjamin netanyahu there. israeli's benjamin netanyahu said they will be nuclear within six months. the president said just recently that it would take at least a year before that happens. either way it's a quick period of time that will go like that. how do you gauge this? >> well, the president is getting his information from the cia which several years ago said that the iranians had stopped work on their nuclear program. so i think the united states appears to be a lot more cautious in its timeline estimation and the israelis. then again the israelis are well within the weapons envelope of a shahab too. were the iranians to get one, given the iranian's statements against israel for the past five years or so, yeah, they are a little less inclined to engage in semantics. bill: my point here captain is what is the difference in six months? if you're going to be nuclear either way, that's what these two leaders of israel and the u.s. are saying. >> the israelis are saying, look this sanction thing isn't work,
are increasingly calling for action. here's what president obama said earlier today in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely with all other countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingness to use-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons.
at the jefferson hotel with republican senators and now a charm offensive in israel with bb netanyahu. and this is apparently the new happier, more pleasant barack obama, but i think the mask slipped a little today and the underlying real thing, to somehow come back to blaming israel, even when other people are firing rockets at israel. >> greta: and so he walks away from this trip with what? >> i'm not saying turning around bad press. >> greta: bad press in the-- >> from the whole notion of blaming israel. you know, if you land and go see their rocket defense system and gee, why do the israelis have to spend this much on a rocket defense system, oh, it's because even from gaza there are rockets fired regularly from israel. >> greta: they had rockets the morning he was there. >> how can you talk about a peace process? >> mr. speaker, always nice to see you, sir. if you don't do your job, you don't get paid. right? why doesn't that simple rule apply to the white house? one republican senator is trying to make sure it does. he's here to tell us about it. and rush versus beyonce. he's he

of ground to cover, martin. i think that one of president obama's goals will be to really send a strong message to prime minister benjamin netanyahu as well as the people of israel and other people in the region that he stands firmly with israel. as you know, the president and the prime minister have had a somewhat rocky relationship. so it's partially to smooth over that relationship. the president has taken some criticism, particularly during the last presidential campaign, that he wasn't a strong enough ally to israel. i think part of it will be to smooth over that perception. but i think you will see the president reiterate the fact the united states will do whatever is necessary to make sure that iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon. of course, that is a big concern for israel and will also sort of reiterate the united states will try to continue to isolate syria and to make sure that at some point assad does step down from power soon. so i think those are two of the key issues you're going to hear him talk about. also, martin, this is not just a trip to talk to the leaders. according

. i think what president obama and his people and his staff understood that in israel, you have to touch the public opinion. and then the leaders especially been minimum n benjamin netanyahu will follow. this man walked back from lots of principles just to get the soldier back. netanyahu was very, very attuned to the public opinion. so i think they understood they have to grasp the young generation, the people of israel. i think president obama did that from the very first moment he stepped down in israel. you know he was off that plane, he took off his jacket, he was informal. he hugged every kid he saw on the way. he first he took netanyahu, he talked about you know his wife, his late brother. his kids. and today he took the israeli public. but you know, i'm not sure because i was listening to that speech and i was asking myself, was it the caring parent giving a pep talk to his adolescent child saying -- >> was it too paternalistic? >> no, in that sense, saying we'll always have your back, but you have to take your future in your hands. we're not going to be there to do that
